Unit has a faulty spindle motor. the reason it plays OK on its end is because the bearings have failed and causing it to mistrack. a dopr of fine oil to the top bearing of the motor will make it work better but the motor needs to be replaced to fix properly.

I just burend a audio cd but it wont play on my cd player


Just a tip.
You can try to burn an CD at a lower speed.
So the index will be deeper and better readable for a normal CD-player.

My Sony CD player is skipping. Generally, It will start a song and then skip to the end. What does that sound like to you? I've had this player for a while and gotten good service for years. It is a single...

Generally this means that it needs cleaning. Start with vacuuming the open aperture with a nozzle tool to **** out as much dust as possible. Then use a CD lens cleaning disc to clean the lens. This should enable the discs to play. Also you can clean the lens with a cotton tip and some isopropyl alcohol and twist the tip over the lens a few times

My cd player skips

Unplug the unit, remove the cover and clean the laser lens glass with a Q-tip. Spray a bit of window cleaner on one end of the Q-tip (over a sink), then use that end to clean the objective lens of the laser. Then dry it with the other end. Wipe Carefully!

Do not apply pressure while cleaning, wipe slowly and then reassemble the unit and test. This is a common problem on many laser-based products, dust and smog get inside the unit and cloud the lens, causing it to skip or not read at all.

Just in case you try to follow directions like me, make sure that you have removed the cover inside the cd slot. No, directions aren't great. They are as difficult as any I have ever seen, but when I tipped the unit up, I saw a note on the bottom of the cd shiny cover that says remove before playing. After removing the flat cover press the button to turn the light off. Light on means standby, not on. Insert cd and push function. Then push play/pause button on right. Hope this helps. If not, return to store.

Try cleaning the lens. If you can see the lens when you open it to put a cd in, you can clean the lens yourself with a q-tip. Use a very small amount of alcohol or windex, just enough to make the tip of the q-tip moist, and rub it on the glass lens in a circular motion. then use the dry end of the q-tip to dry it off. You can then try another cd and see if it plays good. If so, you are good to go, if not, you probably need a new laser pick up. If it needs a new laser, you may want to just buy a new boombox. The repair will most likely cost as much or more than a new boombox would.

If you are not able to see the lens and clean it yourself, try using a cleaning disc. They do not work as good, but they can help. You run it for about 20 seconds, or whatever the directions state. Then give it another try, see if it plays better.

Those are the only reasonable steps for an end user who is not experienced with repairing these type of units. anything else you may end up trying could just cause more damage to the unit, if you are not experienced with electronic repairs.

I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.

HELP!!! My cd player just skips through all song never playing....

Sorry but this unit has a problem with the tracking servo. The problem could be an alighnment, or a bad componet such as the laser assembly, tracking motor or tracking driver IC, with all of these problems the unit will need to come out of the vehicle. Good Luck
